|Applies To||enVision Core 3.7.0 and 4.0|
/etc/syslog.conf file setup correctly
|Issue||AIX - Syslogd flag -n should not be used (AIX event source not discovered)|
Majority of AIX messages are undefined
|Cause||When syslogd started with -n flag, it will suppress string "Message forwarded from <hostname>" added to the beginning of the syslog message that is forwarded to remote host. See http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/pseries/v5r3/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.aix.doc/doc/base/aixinformation.htm (search syslogd)|
Envision expects to receive this string as part of message header, most of messages will be unknown due to missing this string.
|Resolution||When start syslogd daemon on AIX, don't use -n flag.|
